Top 5 Fashion Must Haves For Fall 2010

Fall is a fabulous time for fashion!  As the weather cools off, fashionistas can look forward to switching out their Summer gear for lush fabrics, warm colors, and the most popular trends of the season.  From military jackets to feminine frocks, this Fall is all about contrast – having fun with fashion by mixing and matching the hottest looks! 

1.  Skinny Cargo Pants

Skinny cargos are the new “it” pants for Fall!  Since your closet is probably already full of jeans and trousers, these pants will add something casual and sexy to your wardrobe in one piece.  Wear them to the office with a fitted blazer or out on the town with a flowy blouse and sexy ankle booties.  This pair from the Gap comes in army green or black and is just $49.50 – a great price for the biggest must have fashion trend of the season!  

2. Fab Jackets

Don’t be overwhelmed by the many fabulous jackets available for Fall!  From sexy military inspired jackets to ladylike tweed coats, there is definitely a style to fit your personality.  This season’s jackets are super versatile, and can dress up everything from a dress to jeans and a tee.  Look for fun embellishments like the hardware on this jacket from Express, or the dazzling stones on this boucle number from American Eagle!


3.  Feminine Skirts

Romantic details were a huge trend this past Spring/Summer.  For Fall, the sweetest skirts feature draping, ruffles and rouching with feminine flair!  These pretty pieces pair great with an elegant blouse, or mix it up with a menswear inspired vest and oxfords.  Top off either look with a few long strands of pearls and you’ll definitely be turning heads!  This chiffon version from Banana Republic is delicate and beautiful in a plum shade for the season.

4.  Slouchy Cardigans

The slouchy cardigan is a warm and cozy way to dress up for Fall.  From chunky knits to luxe flyaway versions, this trend is fashionable and functional.  These cardis can be worn open for a casual appeal, or cinched at the waist for a more sophisticated and body conscious look.  This heather grey flyaway from Express has a long, modern shape and would look great on every woman.

 5.   Leopard Accessories

Leopard print accessories graced the Fall runways on everything from scarves and handbags to sexy high heels.  An easy way to spice up any outfit, leopard print is timeless and classic.  Just be sure to keep the rest of your look simple – no need to rock the print from head to toe!  This fierce and affordable scarf ($8.02) would look great with denim and boots, or a sheath and pumps for work.
